On Monday, January 22, both Republicans and Democrats agreed to a short-term funding bill that would expire on February 8. This bill would give both parties sufficient time to negotiate immigration reform, which was the key demand from the Democrats, and allow the US government to function. The short-term funding bill that was signed yesterday is only a postponement of the current logjam.
While 2018 is still in its infancy, there are already signs of a prominent theme from 2017 extending into the new year. Year-to-date, four of the top 10 asset-gathering exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are ex-U.S. equity funds.
While risk-takers will eschew broader-scoped exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for the glory (and profits) of individual stocks, ETFs are a relevant component of any investing strategy. While the profit potential is greatest with a bet on a single company, the opposite is also true. Over the long run, the law of averages makes choosing the best Vanguard ETFs particularly compelling.
